OverviewEdit

The Steamrunner class has been around since the late 24th century, but due to its reliability and effectiveness, it is still in limited use today. The Steamrunner class saw significant action in the Battle of Sector 001 against The Borg, as well as countless battles and sorties during the Dominion War. Simply put, the Steamrunner is fast, agile, and tough.

Class Information
 
Steamrunner class
 
Aft
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Steamrunner-class starship's design serves as the basis for the 25th-century Zephyr-class Heavy Escort, and pioneered many of the Zephyr's signature design features. These include unusual catamaran nacelles that are mounted directly onto the saucer section and a trailing secondary hull, suspended between the nacelles. Thus the Steamrunner's nacelles effectively double as the pylons connecting the saucer and secondary hull.

Unlike the Zephyr class, though, the Steamrunner's deflector is not mounted on the saucer but on the trailing secondary hull, akin to the mission/weapons pod on an Akira-class ship. Like the NX-class escort, the secondary hull hangs below the saucer, with the connecting struts angling down. The saucer itself resembles an upside-down spade blade, sloping downward from the nacelles.

SKIN UNLOCK: Free
This variant of the Steamrunner class has its impulse engines mounted on the pylons connecting the secondary hull to the nacelles, rather than on the primary hull. It also has altered livery.

This is the default skin when commissioning a Blockade Runner Escort.

AbilitiesEdit

The Blockade Runner Escort comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Resonance Cascade Modulator], which can enhance a team's shields for a limited time by eliminating bleedthrough from normal attacks, and decreasing overall damage sustained by the team's shields. The console may be transferred to other ships and used in any console slot.

Standard configurationEdit

Federation starships come with standard equipment and weapons of the lowest mark available at the ship's minimum rank. The items provided are appropriate to the type of vessel and its related playing style.

NotesEdit

  • The Steamrunner Blockade Runner Escort used to be exclusive to Steam as part of the Steam Starter Pack, which also came with the Tier 5 variant, and was made available to Xbox One players during the four week launch period of Star Trek Online's console debut. It was later made available in the Zen Store for 2500   as part of the Steamrunner Bundle.
  • Its console is a reference to the Valve games Half-Life and Team Fortress.
